Money For Rope

One Album

Twin drum kits, two guitars, four voices, a bass, keys and a sweltering, sultry, swaggering style come together to form Money For Rope, dealers in an honest, electric, deep, raw brand of rock music that must be felt to be believed.
With their public-bar rise propelled by word-of-mouth whisperings, 7” releases and an energetic, swirling live show that seethes with energy, Money For Rope released their much-anticipated self-titled full-length recording in November 2012, taking their pulsing sound from dark stages to stereos right across the globe.
Featuring 9 tracks, their self-titled release includes the driving beats of their acclaimed track 'Easy Way Out' as well as the more contemplative feeling 'Misery Lane', the infectious 'Ten Times', a Mack truck-like 'Hang 'em High' and five more to quicken your pulse.
Playing a range of venues and festivals (Splendour, Cherry Rock, Golden Plains, Gumball), Money For Ropecontinue building on a reputation of balls-out performances that transform quiet crowds into rollicking masses show after show after show.
And with a sound that's equal parts style and sweat coupled with their masterclass in showmanship, you're guaranteed a Money For Rope experience that's bound to leave you breathless, with a post-'Rope afterglow destined to make you clamour for more - whether on stage or in stereo.
By day these boys are talking about the footy, going fishing and working their day jobs, but trade-out their pint glasses for instruments and you've got a recipe for chaotic, ambling musical mayhem tied together by harmonies and driven by the spirit of rock.
Money For Rope's debut self-titled album is out now through Thornbury Records/Inertia.

[And you're able], Tell me what you're willing to do. And when you're stable. Tell me what you're willing to lose. Oh good Lord, What's going on? [...] [...] [...] I put the hole in the well, Dying of thirst and you need it as well. I put the hole in the well. Let's crash my eyes And open up the roof of your mouth. And we can talk about the things That have been crowding you out. Get this off my [chest], Watch them [...] for you. [...] And when you're able, Tell me what you're willing to do. If you're stable. Tell me what you're willing to lose. Now I put the hole in the well. Dying of thirst, and I need it as well. I put the hole in the well.
